Tags: ,

The latest NIH News in Health newsletter describes some of the causes of stuttering or disrupted speech patterns. Stuttering affects more people than you might think. Roughly 3 million Americans have this speech disorder that makes speaking smoothly difficult. Scientists are learning about what causes people to stutter, and genes tell a big part of the story. For more information on research being conducted, see the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) page.
